Shaw TV recently featured the Feel The Beat program which brings pow wow and cultural awareness to the local youth.

If you're in the Merrit, BC area, don't be shy, stop on by! The program is open to anyone in the Nicola Valley with an interest in Nla'kapmux and Syilx Culture. FEEL THE BEAT runs 2 nights a week, (Tuesday and Friday), where local teachers and mentors are brought in to share their knowledge and experience.
